How to avoid Harry Potter spoilers

Highly capitalized and reputation-conscious mass media will give you warnings in advance.  Clicking on links — yes and that includes innocuous-looking links — is the most dangerous thing you can do.  Just don’t click on links or MP3 files for a while.

While we are on the topic of links, here is a great post on why doomsday analysis is wrong.  (There are no HP spoilers behind the link.  Seriously.  Really.  I mean it.  It’s statistics, Bayesian approaches vs. frequentism, and when the world will end.  It’s Andrew Gelman, who can’t even send a text message.  I can’t either.)  So please do save for your retirement.
